A supportive partner is there to help mom and docs or midwives focus. This can mean doing a bunch of different stuff! Holding her hand, being her support when she needs to change positions, and coaching her through tough moments. This can also mean holding an oxygen mask in place while the docs and nurses and midwives are attending to other matters. Again, it’s a small, simple gesture, but it just shows that dad is there and involved and doing what he needs to do in that moment. Plus, sitting there at face-level gives mama a familiar, comforting face to focus on while she’s laboring.
